Nanorods standing at attention! A self-assembly technique based on convective and capillary forces was used for the direct fabrication of standing arrays of gold nanorods on lithographically predefined areas (see picture). The hexagonal close-packed structure of gold nanorods creates an ideal substrate for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
